Our Treasured Tapestry Master

It is with much sadness that I write this post...
On the 26th April 2015, our precious and treasured 
Tapestry Master Beverley Compter passed away suddenly
 after a short and totally unexpected illness at Auckland Hospital, 
aged 72 years. She inspired and taught so many people
 to weave and her work with the Tapestry project was
 unstinting. It does not seem possible that someone
 so full of life and enthusiasm is gone from us.
 She worked tirelessly and with great inspiration....
 ..and she always had a warm smile on her face.
 She had a wealth of weaving knowledge, had travelled
extensively and leaves behind a wonderful legacy, not just
within her family and friends, but the many lives she touched.
She inspired many of us to "give things a go"
..and she worked "behind the scene"
 graciously, without any expectations.
We shall dearly miss her.

Patricia and some of her grandchildren.
